Back in April, the Rainbow hosted its first Backyard Bash of 2017, as ’80s favorites Quiet Riot, Black ’N’ Blue and Jetboy all rolled back the years on the Sunset Strip, with Lemmy’s statue observing approvingly. As summer draws to an end, the Rainbow has assembled an even better bill. This time, Dokken headlines (which is interesting, because Lynch Mob, led by former Dokken guitarist George Lynch, plays the Whisky that night — can we whisper “reunion”?) The top end of the bill also features local sleaze-sters Bang Tango and Chicago power-pop vets Enuff Z’Nuff. It’s fascinating that English new wave band Bow Wow Wow is on the bill for a little bit of something different, while Highland Park metalheads Huntress will amp up the heavy. Whether you go for the music or the people-watching, the Rainbow parties are always a blast.
